MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Minot Mayor Curt Zimbelman says he won't seek re-election next year for a fourth term.

The Minot Daily News reports that Zimbelman made the announcement in a written statement.

Zimbelman, a banker, led the city through Souris River flooding in 2011 that swamped more than 4,000 homes and businesses in North Dakota's fourth-largest city.

Zimbelman says "it's time for new leadership to come in and continue the path of growth and prosperity."

Zimbelman was a longtime city alderman before he was elected mayor.
